Peres Projects are to present OBSIDIAN LADDER, the first large-scale solo exhibition in the United States of Donna Huanca. Huanca’s site-specific installation for Marciano Art Foundation’s Theater Gallery will reveal a new topography of triggered senses, combining sound, scent, and live performance. These elements will be experienced together against a backdrop of carved steel sculptures and large format skin paintings.
